The Melrose Place star was convicted of vehicular homicide and assault, after a New Jersey car crash that killed Helene Seeman, 60, and injuring Seeman’s husband Fred. Locane’s blood alcohol was tested and confirmed she was nearly 3x the legal limit of impairment.

The actress was sentenced to 3-years in prison in 2013, of which she served only two and a half years before being released on parole. Superior Court Judge Robert B. Reed preceded over her first case and has been criticized for being ‘too lenient’ with his ruling.

On Thursday, Locane was resentenced to 8-Years in New Jersey State Prison after a new judge agreed her original sentence wasn’t long enough. She has 45-days to appeal.
